“I am attending, and our key program purchases have been made. As a NATPE board member, I’m more interested in what attendees are looking for. It will help us with plans to keep the convention relevant in our changing business environment.”

“Our group has a corporate VP of programming who is going, but GMs don’t go. We do have holes in early fringe. We’re looking at various programs … but aren’t 100 percent sold on anything yet.”
Michael J. Pumo, VP/GM, KLBK (CBS)/ KAMC-TV (ABC), Lubbock, Texas
“We don’t have [enough] needs to warrant making the trip. There are a couple of holes in daytime. People are coming in here to show us … `The Wayne Brady Show,’ stuff like that, so there’s no sense of urgency to go.”
